Off to FW

Will be back in Texas at the ranch in Stephenville. Since we'll have the grandparents as baby sitters, my wife are contemplating a night out. Some questions:

What's new and good in FW? Haven't been there in a couple of years, and we moved away 5 years before that. Enjoyed Chop House and Del Frisco's in the past. Is Lonesome Dove toooo precious? Is Blade's as good as they say? I want the best damned meal in town, with little in the way of pretension. My wife leans towards steaks, Mexican food, etc... so St. Emilion doesn't quite fit the bill.

What about Rough Creek Lodge? Too full of Dallsites?

As for lunches-any preferences re: BBQ or Tex-Mex? I know there will be differences of opinion, but I was wondering if anyplace new is worthy, or of the old standards have fallen.
